MEDINA – Cheyenne E. Farewell, 20, of Medina entered into eternal peace on Saturday, October 17, 2020. Cheyenne was born on December 4, 1999.

She was and will always be the daughter of Rochelle (Nellist) Horner and Jeffrey Farewell, Jr. In twenty short years, she touched the lives of countless family members, friends, teachers and coaches. She was known for her smile, her laugh and her oftentimes brutal honesty. Cheyenne always spoke her truth and encouraged others to do the same.

Cheyenne was a graduate of Medina High School, class of 2018 and was currently a student at SUNY Brockport, where she was studying to become a therapist and writer. She loved looking up at the night sky and seeing the moon and stars. Cheyenne’s favorite things in life were music, dance, writing and above all else, her family and friends. She would do anything in her power to help anyone who knew her, whether it was a ride to a party, or a shoulder to cry on. Cheyenne was a resilient soul who never gave up on hope, even at the very end.

Beside her parents, Cheyenne is survived by her sister, Maisie Farewell; her cousin, Lexus Burtwell; maternal grandmother, Gail Nellist; paternal grandparents, Patti and Jeff Farewell, Sr.; step-father, Dan Horner; several extended family members and countless friends. Cheyenne was greeted at Heaven’s gate by her grandfather, Gary Nellist.

Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, October 20th, from 3 to 8 p.m. at Cooper Funeral Home, 215 W. Center St., Medina. The family requests friends and family write a note or letter to bring with you to place in her casket, so she can be surrounded by love for all eternity. Private interment will be in Lynhaven Cemetery, Lyndonville. Share memories and condolences at

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you cherish every moment with your children, your family, your friends. Life is fleeting. The only thing we take with us is love.
